Not totally sure but I think if you already have stuff installed and created a recovery disc, it will be restored to which ever point you made it, which means everything would still be installed. Like I said I'm not totally sure but that's the drift I got from it.
Recovery disc - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A recovery disc is a general term for media containing a backup of the original factory condition or favored condition of a computer as configured by an original equipment manufacturer or an end-user.
As for that, not sure if you get to choose what you would like in your recovery disc, best thing to do is reformat and reinstall or does the laptop have any restore points?
